are getting kicked off these exchanges. if your doctor happened to be at one of those hospitals, you don't get to use your doctor anymore. but here's the good news. your doctor was probably substandard anyway so you'll get a better doctor. >> no. the good news is if you have money you can pay your doctor cash. that's what it's like in new york. if there's a doctor worth his salt he isn't in one of these plans because he doesn't need the plan. so he charged up-front on your credit card. >> preside obama will say you have a substandard insurance company in the first place. >> you didn't want your doctor. >> he'll become like my uncle al here pretty much. >> what do you make of this? >> he's kind of right. >> who's kind of right? >> bothf them. the old system was kind of -- their premise is -- >> both of who? >> kind of right. let me explain. the old system wasn't very good. people lost their doctors. >> oh, come on! >> what are you lking about? >> this is the old system times 50. forget it. this is the crummy insurance mandated throw your rationing system we had before just exploded much wider.
into the depression. >> jim, you don't necessarily agree, getting to single payer is not necessarily a bad thing according to you. >> no, brenda, it's not but as to the folks who are living or think they're living in an episode of "the x files" that was not the plan all along. i mean, there couldn't be more space in between obama care and the single payer health care system. look, we have single payer health care already in this country, it's called medicare. and guess what? medicare has a higher approval rating than all private health insurance. >> well tracy, what about obama care, the approval ratings are just going down like that. what do you think, are we headed to a single payer system? >> god, i hope not, brenda. look, i don't think it's conspiratorial. i think they were just kind of dumb. they didn't read it. they had no idea what they passed. it was incompetence left to right, down to the web side. single payer system would be so bad for this country. i get the notion that we have to sort of get some preventative care out there and things like that but the way that they're talking about
, and greece and italy. when it comes time to vote, they will realize, don't ruin a good thing. neil: you would think. a lot of liberal are not great at math, realizing the big return you get from having a competitive economy, a lot of u.s. firms have congregated there and started opening up shop in switzerland, they don't want to chase that away. but some social democrats in switzerland say it is not worth. surely the swiss population must see that is screwy. >> this is why i predict this will be defeated. switzerland is the fourth freest economy in the world, they attract a lot of investment not just banks major multinationals like nestles and schindler, they use switzerland as their location for european manufacturing, and involvement. whether they are u.s. firms or local swiss firms, the swiss people are not going to wreck that, i would hope they shouldn't, you could go back 6 years in the past -- 60 years in the past, and new york was our richest most prosperous state, and yet they have high taxes, they are losing jobs to other states. neil: you would look at france, and some other country
? >> guesstimates crazy. i don't think anyone fully identifies either party. they are taking the position that they have to be pure. neil: and ideological type of thing. >> exactly. i would love to see a third-party form. the parties don't have to be perfect. up up up up up up up up. neil: are you setting up a group? why not? >> well, it's not even so much . it has to be something that you think about. >> i have 10,000 things going on. there was unity 2008, other folks have approached me. i am more than willing to listen. >> what you think of those who who have initiated and been targeted by the erez? >> i don't look at these things. i'm not paranoid to say that what is happening on the republican side, i'm not buying it. honestly, i'm more on the side that it's not a scandal. because i think that goes to the purity. whenever you take something and you take on 100 actions, you can anecdotal lives eyes and create any kind of story that you want. >> there was a pattern that. >> yes, there are multiple patterns. when you have 10,000 instances, it's the signal and the noise. you can find 100
interviewers they are not. >> don't believe the pollsters. we are at an all time high. what does the average american feel? they feel richer and they have less debt. real estate prices are back up. the consumer is going to spend money. the holiday season is shorter, but stores are open on thanksgiving. retailers are going to be pleasantly surprised. >> peter, do you agree? there's consumer confidence being down, some of the employment numbers are good, some o bad. what do you see? >> we are not creating full-time jobs. let's not go down that path. i don't see a good season. incomes are not rising. they are conservative about taking on debt. they are facing higher health care premiums. employer based insurance is pushing bigger co-pays on them. most importantly, gas prices are rising at exactly the wrong time. if anything puts a dower on people, it's gas prices. it comes out of their paycheck every week. >> i don't know where you are living, gas prices are low compared to two and three years ago. gas prices are low. consumers feel wealthier. we know consumers will spend $600 billion the next
'm asking, will it impact holiday sales? yes or no? >> no. i don't think so. >> that's all i need to know. dagen? >> yes. >> jeez, what is up with you guys? it's like mutiny. go ahead. >> we had the run of the place when he was in charge. that's why. >> well, because it who are being dropped, have to buy different insurance at higher prices. even if they aren't writing the check right now or right before christmas, they are going to look ahead and say, hey, i have to pull back. i have to adjust. i'm paying x amount more every month for my health insurarance. i will cut back now. >> we need a behavioral psychologist here. >> all right. adam, what do you think? >> well, i think that charlie -- i hate agreeing with him. but there are bigger factors at play as to whether or not it will be a good or a bad holiday shopping season. far and away the most important factor is how the economy is doing. the botched health care law implementation -- and by the way, neil, he's got you there. you get an e for effort there. but you want to blame everything on obama care. and it could be terrible. and --
where's neil. some asking for ben and only one dig for charlie. that's the way it goes. >> don't tell me that person was at a strip club. >> sounds like it. >> charles what do you make of that, that we already now started addressing the problems with this law but now i'm beginning to suspect come the costs. what do you think? >> well, we're talking already 300,000 into medicaid, a program that was bust to begin with. we're talking about by the way it was never suggested or i've never heard the president say taxpayers were subsidized, health care insurance for people who have jobs, in fact up to 400% above poverty, a brand new entitlement, that's going to cost trillions of dollars, and by the way you had a plan that was supposedly substandard we'll get you a better one, like a banker telling you hey, why don't you buy this million-dollar house you can't afford. history not only repeating it self but exponentially more dangerously so. >> what do you think? >> i think it' a dangerous proposition that we're getting into where you already have marco rubio the senator calling for legislation t
in their purse strings but it's all about expectations. if they're worried and confidence goes down, they don't spend. >> exactly, brenda. i disagree with you on one point. i don't think it is hard to quantify. in the most recent "forbes" study, in 49 stat the average premium is expected to go up 41%. so if you've gotten a letter like i have from blue cross/blue shield, it's easy to find out what your new premiums are going to be. if you're one of the six or seven people fortunate enough to log on to health care.cgov, you know your new premium. if you're using a state exchange up and running or the one in d.c., you know what your premiums are going to be. you're getting sticker shock. you may not have start paying premiums right away, i don't have to start paying for a w months, but it's right there in front of you. and, for example, in my case i know that over the course of the year my premium is going to go up $2,000 to $3,000. for a lot of families they're going to go, whoa, i've got to pay another $2,000, $3,000 next year? i tell you what, i have a bare bones policy. for a lot of people
, but i don't see many people getting into that. >> a shorthand for this can be fiscally conservative and socially tolerant. it will show you that americans are much more physically conservative than their elected representatives and a majority of americans think that we should balance the budget. they think that we should legalize marijuana, no one wants to talk about that,. >> but more are coming around? >> yes, they will come around last. and so when you have this, there's much more libertarianism and the government and you'll begin to see some of these expressions in the political marketplace as well. john: all kinds of skepticism exists. and they are just considered odd at times including my colleagues >> even for a libertarian like you. >> that is what is happening. stossel doesn't care. so what is the hostility? >> part of it is that we have a two party -- a major two-party system in the country and people tend to special -- especially congregate around the republicans and they see everything through that. so you are by definition, you're on the other side is you make these cho
disagree with that? >> no, no, i don't disagree wit. i'm not so sure i would go so far that they were tainted, i'm just not crying real hard for them in my beer. melissa: yeah. >> these nice may be very well talent and what they do and bunch of them left to go to millennium. steve cohen is lot of things. he was smart enough to surround himself with people that are very, very bright. they didn't make that much money for being stupid. melissa: james what do you think. >> i will not cry for them either but this may be interpreted as sad commentary on wall street -- melissa: why is this not a sad commentary on wall street? at love folks out there say this firm has been very suspicious for a long time. they were trading ahead of the street. they were too good. made too much money. all the talk on the street for years and years it was dirty money. >> you have to give people their presumption of innocence and you need to keep it in per speck. they had six people convicted of six people of insider trading. there is a firm of about a thousand people. this is not entirely clear a firm-wide prob
. then they said but one at a time. so we don't want -- melissa: obviously obamacare at the top of the agenda again today. it looks like we all may be able to keep existing health plans after all but what is the cost of that now? we start off by crunching the numbers for you because even when they say it's not, it is always about money. >> the bottom line is insurers can extend current plans that would otherwise be canceled into 2014 and americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to reenroll in the same kind of plan. >> hmmm. so, if you like your plan you can keep your plan, at least for another year. president obama announcing the big health care fix that will let insurance companies continue canceled plans through 2014. it is going to cost more money somewhere. could be coming from you. i bet it is coming from you. here to crunch numbers, former cbo director doug holtz-eakin. everyone will argue about the politics of this. this show is called "money." i want to drill down on numbers, what this really means, what it is going to cost. the first question i had after i heard the statement, y
